Fall 2011Q40The EVIP Revenue sharing funds are split into three categories: one based on accountability and transparency, one based on intergovernmental collaboration/consolidation/service sharing, and one based on employee compensation practices.

In order to receive the EVIP Revenue sharing funds related to accountability and transparency, eligible jurisdictions must certify they have produced a performance dashboard and a citizen's guide to local government finances by October 1, 2011. Did your jurisdiction certify that it had produced a performance dashboard and citizen's guide as of October 1, 2011?
